Affinities: section Xanthodermatei [subsectional lineage undescribed, group includes A. pseudopratensis]. R. W. Kerrigan April 2013; ; e-mail from Kerrigan:; Here are three photos of the very large Redwood-associated toxic species common in Scott s Valley in December 2012. I had one collection on the drier and I suspect it became a NAMA voucher; I will inquire. Meanwhile, I ve been humbled once again in my quest to grasp the diversity among these species. I d like to study and sequence material of this large, gregarious species. If you might have a recent collection, please let me know.; You might have heard me apply the new (provisional) name A. deardorffensis to it, based on my experiences in the Sierra, but after sequencing coastal material of a smaller, scattered-solitary species under Redwood, that latter one is a DNA match for A. deardorffensis. ; The big coastal species remains incompletely studied. Thanks for any help,; -- Rick
